Tallis's first litter


Tallis is the combination of 9 years in developing our breeding programme and with Tallis and his litter, is our turning point. I would like to say a special thank you to Sandra Williams of Tairnbacher Kennels, S.A for allowing us to have Karma (Tairnbacher Winkie Woo) live with us as well to Irene Hayton of Masterton Kennels for allowing us the use of Popeye (Masterton Leica Legend). He is the half brother of our Jack, an active Community Service Dog in A.C.T and Chester, a Correctional Service Dog in Qld.


Tallis does not carry the long coat gene.


Tallis is first and foremost our beautiful companion and friend. He is very happy to play rough and tumble games with me, yet, with our young daughter Katie,  she will slip his flat collar and lead on and Tallis goes into overdrive, as a very sweet nature GSD, who is fully aware of just our small and vulnerable Katie's little hands are and never even attempts to pull for fear of hurting her. This all comes from a dog that has about 7 obedience lessons in his entire 2 years of life.


Just recently, Tallis natural character came to the fore, when our one and only neighbour, became deranged and was violently and physically threatening my life and that of my dogs with a recently purchased Cane Knife.


Tallis stood his ground for near on 10 minutes, inside our fence, even thou the neighbour attempted to get him to come on to public property, to cause him harm, Tallis knew he was not to do this. Our boy protected us until my father in law came on the scene.


Tallis physically and mentally proved, what I always suspected, he would put his life on the line for his family, even thou he had never been trained to be anything else but a fun loving pet. He has bounced back from his harrowing and stressful ordeal.


Tallis is what I class a great German Shepherd Dog and does his breed proud.


Tallis combines the producing combination of Arko V. Huhnegrab and Jeck V. Noricum. Tallis litter sister, Leabashiba Delta Force 'A' 0:0 'Z'0:0, also gained her class 1 on the day with a glowing critique
